Introducing Treat Box Tag Lines, Boxed Backgrounds: Stripes, & More King Of The Grill

Good morning, friends! Welcome back to the Papertrey Ink April countdown! I'm so glad to hear that you're all as excited about King Of The Grill as I am. It's super fun to build custom burgers with this set and I have more to share with you today. I also thought today would be a perfect time to introduce a couple of additional sets coming your way this month. Let's get to it, shall we?

First off, I'd like to present Treat Box Tag Lines and Boxed Backgrounds: Stripes! These two sets are designed to compliment the treat packaging dies that you'll see later this week, but they're also wonderful for dressing up the boxes and bags you may already have in your collection.

I wanted to use these new sets with my Gable Box Die to kick things off. The stripes are the perfect length and width to fit on the face of the box! With just a few simple impressions you have a charming striped package. I began by tracing around a die (just so I knew where to position my stripes) and stamping Mint Julep stripes onto the coordinating cardstock. I used the whole image for the front and back, but only the two center stripes for the sides. Then, I simply die cut the pieces and assembled as normal.

Next, I die cut the Treat Box Tag Lines label shape and stamped it with the coordinating frame image using Summer Sunrise ink. I added the sentiments, also from Treat Box Tag Lines, using Berry Sorbet and Stormy Sea ink. Then, I die cut and stamped the Bitty Bouquet using New Leaf, Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, and Berry Sorbet inks. I attached the label shape and bouquet to the front of my striped box using foam tape. So cute!

Next up I have another look at King Of The Grill to share with you.

Well Done Burger Card

Some of the longer sentiments in this set can be paired with other sentiment elements to create super thick and juicy burgers or they can be split out on their own to look more like condiments. The "Congratulations" sentiment is the perfect example. In this case it's representing a tomato slice. Isn't it fun what simple color substitutions can do for us?

Anyway, I began by stamping the Hello Sunshine rays, inked in Lemon Tart and Harvest Gold, onto a white panel. I built my burger in the space below, adding the die cut buns and olive with foam tape. Most of the colors are fairly self-explanatory, but I wanted to mention that I got the onion color by inking first in Autumn Rose and then tapping in Amethyst Allure ink. I mounted the white panel with foam tape to a card front that I'd covered with patterned paper from the Comic Strip Patterned Paper Collection. Well done? I think so.

Thank you so much for joining me today! Make sure to check in with Nichole, Amy, BetsyHeather, Melissa, Erin, and Maile for more inspiration. I'll see you again soon!

So will that burger fit in the gable box for gift giving? LOL. In all seriousness, Lizzie, you are so creative and thought of everything when designing King of The Grill right down to the sesame seed bun!
